Film 365 – Day 20: January 10, 2014


A little weekend get-away…

John’s company took us on this amazing weekend trip to Nisswa, MN for the weekend. We stayed at a cabin in the Grandview Lodge resort with a pretty little deck filled with snow. We quickly dubbed this the ‘cake table’.

Of course the photo is a bit blurry….it was dark, and I didn’t bring a tripod with. It was dark by the time we arrived at the cabin, and we spent a very large chunk of time before that on a bus. So it was a bit less photogenic of a day to begin with.

Other than really disliking scanning 35mm film, and realizing that expired Ilford HP5+ 400 film gets EXTREMELY grainy when it expires, I really do like this little camera!

I really wish this photo was not so blurry….

But that is what I get for trying to take a photo in a dark theater, with only 400 speed film (I could have pushed it!!) while people were walking back and forth past me (hello vibrations!) with no tripod…

(I really have learned!)

Oh well.

We took my parents on our annual outing to see the British Arrow Awards at the Walker Art Center. It was so cold out that day, I did not want to bring my Hasselblad out, so this was taken with my 35mm Nikon FG-20. My father-in-law gave me that camera years ago (he used it for many years before) and I really enjoy it (though I do hate scanning 35mm negatives).
